Well... sometimes pool halls can be fun, but let's face it... you're not lookin' too hot sinking that 8-ball while 100 other people are doing the same thing right next to you. Throw down a few shots and kick that guy's ass who's had the table for the past two hours. These bars will have you coming back for more.
This is a replica of your high school buddy's basement where you played pool, sneaked beer, played Pacman and if you were lucky enough... by the end of the night, you would be playing tonsil hockey with your crush on the couch.
This is a staple bar in the East Village that possess all the great aspects one craves in a dive bar. Pool table - check. Cheap drinks - check. Good Jukebox - check again. Cute folks to flirt with - Check check check!
Who knew a bar the size of my rich grandma's walk-in closet could be so excellent? It's got it all - pool table, hotties, good music and cheap drinks. If you knew what was right, you'd get the Tecate and Tequila special.
This place is one of the few cool bars left from the good ol' days in the East Village. Come here with your sweetie or invite your closest large group of friends. It's perfect for both. Plus, they have a mean juke box and two pool tables.
This is one of the few bars in Soho where true locals frequent. With the perfect mix of dive and casual, most people will fell right at home. Grab a personal pizza, a beer and pool cue and you're golden.
If you ever find yourself in midtown searching for a place to chill out after a long day of exploring the exhausting city... stop in here and take a load off. It's one of the few bars in this neighborhood that feels like home... for everyone.
It's true! There's a cool bar in Morningside Heights! Can you believe it?? This is a perfect place for Columbia students and locals who aren't as smart as Columbia students (like moi) to join forces and drink and play pool.
I love a place that hasn't changed its decor in over a decade. These kinds of bars a dying breed and it's our job to keep them alive! If you like grit, pool, cheap booze and live music, this is your bar.
Who doesn't deserve to act like some high society New Yorker for one night? Play pool surrounded by floor to ceiling stacked bookshelves and tufted leather couches while sipping on a Manhattan.
The former Brownies has done quite a fine job at holding court in the East Village after all these years. Places like this makes me think there's still hope for this hood. It hasn't completely faded into oblivion. I like this place.
I love that there's bars like this in the LES. It's big, dark and intense and there are some super cute kids hangin' out there. Throw down some shots and listen to your fave band or just chill out and play some pool. Either way, I likey and so will you.
When I lived in this hood, my mission was to find the right bar where I could just kick back, play some pool and hang with with my pals. I nearly leaped for joy when I discovered this little gem.
